Fiduciary Oversight

Implement a Proactive Approach to Plan Governance

As a plan fiduciary, you have many responsibilities that can expose you to legal liability. Under ERISA law, a fiduciary is required to act prudently and in the sole interest of the plan participant, to diversify plan investments, and to act in accordance with the plan documents. We aim alleviate this burden by serving as fiduciary through Kestra Advisory Services, LLC. In this capacity, we work side by side with plan sponsors to help ensure fiduciary obligations are always met by implementing a highly disciplined process based on global fiduciary standards.

Phase One: Developing a Foundation

Our process begins by working with your Investment Committee to review all processes and procedures currently governing your retirement plan. Services we provide include:

    • Identify or establish Investment Committee
    • Examine plan design
    • Document prudent processes
    • Review all existing documents
    • Draft Investment Policy Statement (IPS)
    • Draft Education Policy Statement

Phase Two: Plan Maintenance

With a coherent process and procedure in place, we assist plan sponsors with meeting their fiduciary obligations throughout the calendar year. Services in our maintenance phase include:

    • Annual Fiduciary Plan Review
    • Annual 404(a) and 404(c) Review
    • Quarterly Investment Reviews
    • Fiduciary Education
    • Annual compliance test consulting
    • Regulatory updates and education
    • Maintenance of a fiduciary file via a secure, online Fiduciary Briefcase™:
      • Plan Documents
      • Service Agreements & Contracts
      • Investment Policy Statement
      • Investment Committee Charter
      • Meeting Minutes
      • Employee Communications
      • Quarterly Investment Reviews

A recent study of 400 plans found that investment choices offered by 401k plans was inadequate in 62% of the plans studied - that is 62% of plans studied did not offer effective diversification across broad asset classes.
